Lego Avengers, and other Marvel characters, assemble!

Hulk’s got a tattoo gun, is that wise? You can view full size images, and more Blackpool street art, via my Flickr album.

Dieselpunk recycled metal statues by Kreatworks

Have you ever woken up and wished there was a giant Autobot statue in the corner of your bedroom? Perhaps you’ve always been after an Alien Queen light for your bathroom or a Predator for the lounge. You might want to impress the neighbours with a freaking huge Incredible Hulk statue on the front lawn. Well guess what? You’re in luck! Kreatworks, based in Bangkok, produce individual art pieces built from scrap metal auto & machine parts and recycled materials then coat them in a rust resistant lacquer.

Every statue, table, light or sculpture is unique as they use whatever materials are available at the time. They have clearly done their fanboy (or girl) homework and produce close, but no cigar, versions of Alien, Predator, Transformers, Superheroes and more original creations like Dragons, Pirates and Skeletal Warriors. Those big statues must weigh in at a hefty shipping cost but if you want something this amazing it’s not going to come cheap. Prepare to be amazed………..

Retro toys and apparel by the Minion-Factory

Phil Postma has been a character designer for over 20 years in TV animation working on projects such as Flash Gordon and The Mask: Animated Series. His body of work can only be described as super geeky cool and can be seen over on his blog at the Minion-Factory.

The sheer quantity of quality illustrations would fill many articles, so I have picked out my favourite packaging and action figure re-designs from classic lines such as He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Star Wars, Marvel’s Secret Wars, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Six Million Dollar Man. If you feel like supporting an artist today go grab one of the many Minion-Factory t-shirt designs available at Redbubble.

Marvel Zavvi ZBOX May 2015 = Marvellous!

Just received the May Marvel Comics themed Zavvi ZBOX (don’t click that link yet!), it’s a mixed bunch of fun things lovingly picked out for you and sent directly to your doorstep for only £19.99. Does this represent good value for money? Let’s find out….

The box arrived late afternoon, well packaged in a mailer bag that was tough and sturdy (requiring scissors). It was at this point I whipped out my camera and filmed an Unboxing video which can be found HERE on YouTube . Upon opening I was greeted by the mighty Captain Iron Pool and a smorgasbord of delights (see below), then I made my video and the items ended up magically displayed like this……

Marvel Comics Zavvi ZBOX, May 2015

Contents rundown:

  • Marvel Funko Pop! I got Black Widow which is good considering the general lack of female toys doing the rounds at the moment. She looks great and wobbles nicely (steady on boys).
  • NECA Scalers Silver Spider-Man that seems to have taken up pole dancing as a new profession. Attach the little fella to headphones or another cable and you’re guaranteed to look like a swinger.
  • Topps Avengers Hero Attax tin and unpunched cards (see unboxing video for my terrible pronunciation problems). I’ve never played this game but the cards and tin are very nice.
  • The History ChannelStan Lee’s Superhumans Season One DVD set. Five and a half hours of super human documentary goodness.
  • Marvel Secret Wars 001 ZBOX exclusive variant cover. The multiverse is dying. Only two universes remain. Today, Earths collide.
  • June Issue 232 of Total Film featuring the Incredible Hulk on the cover. Movies, comics, games, TV and more in a slick looking glossy magazine plus a special subscription offer if you’re feeling that way inclined.
  • Marvel Comics temporary tattoos, which I might take to a party tomorrow night and see what happens after a few beers.
  • Spider-Man candy sticks, edible white things with a fun little sticker inside.
  • The ZBOX Marvellous magazine.

An all together impressive array of all things Marvel Comics for a reasonable price. Next month sees Cops as the theme and we’re already promised a Judge Dredd item, which it all rather exciting. You can place your order for the next Zavvi ZBOX here and watch my YouTube Unboxing Video here.

Avengers: Age of Ultron – two new posters released.

Two versions of the new poster for Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron have hit the net today.

Possibly as a pre-cursor to Civil War we have either Captain America or Iron Man leading the pack of superheroes. Nice artwork and some interesting names on the credits including Anthony Mackie, Hayley Atwell, Idris Elba, Stellan Skarsgard and Danny Elfman. Wait a minute, Danny Elfman? Mmmm my Spider Sense is tingling.
